Stop the Spray

I don't know who's right, but I figure it can't hurt to have more people know that there are plans to have arial pheromone sprayings of the entire bay area to control the recent 'light brown apple moth' infestation this summer. You can read the 'against' position here at stopthespray.org. There is a petition, and there is going to be a vote in the Assembly Committee on Agriculture this wednesday, so if you would like to not be sprayed, now would be the time to go sign the petition. There's a lot of retoric about this, and how untested it is, and whether it would do any good anyway, but frankly I'm having a hard time getting worked up over it. It doesn't seem like a good idea, but will it actually be worse for my health than getting stuck at a red light behind a smelly diesel truck?
